Bharti has been practising yoga since 2000. Initially she started with Hatha Yoga and then in 2004 started practicing Ashtanga Yoga with teacher Christos Christophy in London, who continuously inspired her and was able to transmit his passion for yoga as a spiritual practice (sadhana).
Bharti also studied with Eileen Gaultier and Lino Miele and took courses with internationally known teachers such as Surinder Singh, David Swenson, John Scott and Matthew Sweeney amongst other international teachers.

She immediately knew yoga would be a long term friend and the source of self discovering and development. After living in London for several years and working in the corporate world she felt naturally drawn to yoga as a lifestyle and decided to teach and help people through healing. So she trained as a Yoga Alliance certified teacher in India, where she also lived in an ashram for a few winters and where she was able to really deepen her practice, not only with asanas but also studying the scriptures and 'living' every aspect of Yoga.
Since 2010 she has been spending several months in India every year, where she teaches English to orphans as a volunteer and continues to deepen her practice through daily asanas (postures), pranayama (breathing excercises) and meditation. In 2012 she was also initiated into Reiki in the Usui/Tibetan tradition by Rebecca Lemaire and now incorporates it into her daily practice, as well as giving Reiki treatments to others. Her approach to Yoga and Reiki is very holistic and therapeutic and she sees them as toosl to improve one's outlook on life and speed up the process of purification towards a clear heart and mind. Healing is an ongoing process and she believes these two practices can really help you through it!

She currently teaches in London in the winter and one week intensive retreats in Italy and Crete in the summer. She has also taught in events such as EcoCamp (music and holistic festival in central Italy) and at Tushita Meditation Centre, Dharamsala, India.
Bharti's teachings focus on Hatha Yoga followed by pranayama and meditation. She also promotes Kirtan (mantra singing), which helps open the heart and reconnect to one’s self as well as self massage and relaxation exercises. In her retreats she also includes practices such as Trataka, Eyes Yoga, Water Yoga and Osho's Nadabrahma Meditation.

The retreats are usually in the countryside, on the beach or moutain areas so that the nature and slow pace of the place are of great help for Yoga practice.

yoga with Bharti June 2015 Crete

I had a wonderful retreat with Bharti this June (2015) and highly recommend her as a yoga teacher. The week was well organised and paced,: we progressed as the time went on to more challenging postures, as well as meditations - FANTASTIC! Bharti is an incredibly 'gentle facilitator' who helped progress through body correction and was really easy to listen to for instruction.


The setting of the retreat was beautiful and the accommodation comfortable. The group size (5) in this instance was great and allowed us to really bond. I loved every minute and am thinking of when I can go back to another week of 'yoga with Bharti'. I'd go back in a flash if time allowed! It is a 10/10 from me.

Technical and professional

Valentina taught yoga to my meditation retreat group for over a week. She has excellent attention to pose detail and presents suggestions based on your skill level. She was careful in observing common errors and potential causes of over-extension or injury. Valentina's enthusiasm for yoga really comes through and makes for fun sessions.

Everything You hope for in a yoga class......

I am so happy to have the opportunity to practice and learn with Valentina. Her love of yoga and desire to share its benefits is inspirational.
I was luck enough to go to her retreat in Lentas Crete as a beginner and found Valentina's personal attention with adjustments and focus on the breath and meditation to be incredibly helpful. I was really surprised at the progress made in one week with my yoga practice and more holistic wellbeing. I highly recommend Valentina as a fantastic yoga teacher
